Sligo County Council, and other LAs, have been in consultation with the Department of Rural & Community Development on the process leading to the finalisation of the upcoming PEACE PLUS programme. A consultation process for the overall Programme is currently underway managed by the SEUPB, (Special European Union Projects Board) which will shape the programme.
The PEACE PLUS programme is worth €1 Billion (€1,000,000,000) over the seven years of its projected timeframe. The combined value of all 17 Local Authority Action Plans will be approximately €90m. The consultation will run until 5pm on 12th May, 2021.
Groups and organisations are strongly encouraged to identify the priorities in their communities and organisations and to input to the consultation process. All consultation processes are important and influence the direction of the subject under consultation.
There are 22 separate thematic areas in the programme and SEUPB has produced a suite of Navigation Papers and presentations to help guide different sectors identify the areas of the programme most relevant to them and focus their submission accordingly. Feel free to share the guidance with any stakeholder organisations organisation or groups that you may be aware of. The Papers cover the following sectors:
